second. it's a cirrus sr22. it can be a four or five seat configured airplane. it's famous for the parachute system designed to save the passengers and aircraft and it's happened many times. it's not clear if it deployed or popped out on impact. i noticed there was no fire which suggested, a, it didn't hit hard enough to rupture the fuel tanks. or b, it may have been nearly out of, or out of, fuel. two survivors were carted to a hospital. the faa can investigate for violations of flight safety standards. and ntsb team will be here to investigate for the cause once they arrive. like all plane crashes, they are all presumed to be potential crime scenes to keep people, including the media, from
disturbing the evidence. we did have the opportunity to speak to a neighborhood who heard the crash, and we'll be able to bring you that sound at approximately 6:00 when we are back. that is the situation now. just short of the runway at sonoma sky park, tom vacar. >> tom, you mentioned the parachute. the cirrus is the only aircraft that comes with a parachute on the plane and has an excellent safety record. but in this case, we don't know, as you mentioned, whether the parachute deployed after the plane hit the ground or perhaps the plane was so low to the ground by the time the parachute was deployed it didn't make a big difference. although it could have potentially saved three lives for those who survived. >> reporter: that's the beauty of this investigation. the faa will come out here to check against whether or not this was operating correctly and
all that. but they'll determine did this thing come out at the correct time? did it not come out at all? was the pilot trying to get the plane to the airport which is just a couple of thousand feet at most from here. it's an important investigation. fortunately you have three survives and they may be able to contribute to this. that will be important for people who fly these airplanes or the people that could have been struck by it had it hit in a more populated area. >> we'll see you at 6:00 and look forward to hearing from the witness to see what they saw. we have more information about the plane that crashed it. looks similar to this one. it's manufactured by cirrus design cooperation. it was the model sr22. it's a single engine aircraft and typically has four or five seats. a three alarm fair raced through a downtown building in lafayette last night. the fire burned so fast and hot, east bay med has to increase
water pressure to fight the fire. henry lee is at the building where the chamber of commerce and restaurant are among the nine businesses that are a charred mess. henry, do investigators know how or where the fire started? >> reporter: well, julie, it's not safe for the fire investigators to go into what remains of the building. they have to secure the billing first. they have an idea possibly where the fire started. the fire broke out before midnight in the heart of downtown lafayette. . within moments, with giant flames flying everywhere, it was clear to firefighters they wouldn't be aggressively attacking the fire. it was soon clear that no businesses could be saved. this view from skyfox shows the devastation. among the casualties, the chamber of commerce, a popular
restaurant, a cpa office, and others. the fire appeared to start in a restaurant but the determination of what started the fire may take time. >> we're developing a plan to safely initiate the investigation. there are parts of the building about to fall down or have fallen down. in order to safely conduct the investigation, we need to bring in additional resources. sfwl >> reporter: the heat forced evacuation of nearby buildings. loud booms of tanks used for outdoor heating exploded. east bay had to increase the water pressure. some 12,000 gallons of water were sprayed per minute. the damage at least a million dollars. >> it's a big impact to us. >> i'm sure the board will come together. i'm sure the city and chamber will come together and come up with a temporary solution to
find a home for the chamber. >> i can't believe this happened. i just got a phone call and text messages, it's a shame. >> reporter: fire officials say it might be at least 24 hours before they can go in the wreckage to determine what caused the blazed. after they do that, the building known to many will be leveled. >> it was a ranging fire. i saw it when i was driving home from work last night on highway 24. i was taking pictures of it. there was so much heat and so many embers floating up in the sky. describe it for us now. it's in a densely populated area. there are a lot of businesses and homes right there. >> reporter: you have homes, the busy downtown district with famous restaurants. the smell of smoke is in the air, very thick. it's quiet otherwise. but we have a lot of fire

one. >> democrats were critical of a provision that would allow insurance companies to sell bare bones plans as long as they offer coverage that meats the standards of the affordable care act. former president jimmy carter was treated for dehydration today after being in the hot sun in canada. this is some of the video from earlier today. he was taking part in one of his favorite causes, building homes for habitat for humanity. carter was taken to the hospital as a precaution but he is feeling fine tonight. he and his wife, rosalynn, are long time supporters of the housing charity. a young girl sexually assaulted as a laundromat and it was caught on video. the elementary school girl was washing cloits with her grandmother -- clothes with her on tuesday. this man molested the girl without the grandmother or other
